How to Use Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook
An interactive workshop at PINE June 21
Today, most business people use social media in some way, shape or form to connect with their colleagues, customers and prospects. But many are still learning the basic principles, strategies and tactics on their own through frustrating, time-consuming trial and error. That’s why we’re offering this interactive, hands-on workshop. Over the course of a few hours, Bob Cargill will walk you through the steps you need to take to not only get started on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook, but to use these three social media sites like a pro. So whether you’re a beginner or intermediate social media practitioner, bring your laptop and be prepared to spruce up your own – or your company’s – online presence.
